Let’s talk about Pixar.

We all know who they are. In Disney’s darkest time, they rose up from the ashes, and produced the only truly good movies under the banner of Uncle Walt during the early 2000s, (The Emperor’s New Groove and Lilo & Stitch notwithstanding).

Pixar, helmed by their fearless leader John Lasseter, enthralled audiences worldwide with their engaging characters and original stories, becoming critical and Oscar darlings. (Not so much recently, I might add…) Despite Lasseter’s later executive actions, (American Dog/Bolt hint hint), he was the man behind the magic. It was he that transformed the company into a classic generating machine.

However, when you look at the entire Pixar canon objectively, a noticeable pattern starts to emerge. Many of these films follow a very similar formula, so much so that once you notice it, it starts to feel a bit gimmicky. This formula is as follows; Character A meets/is friends with Character B. A and B have very different personalities and their comedic chemistry is quite enduring. Then situation A happens and Characters A and B must try to resolve situation A in a heartwarming tale of buddy-buddy friendship. Character A can be a toy cowboy, a rat who likes to cook, a talking racecar, or an elderly man. Situation A can be searching for a missing fish-child, trying to return a child to the human world, or trying to pose as the world’s greatest chef. The Pixar formula is basically a buddy comedy. Different variations exist here and there, but almost every Pixar film follows this formula.

Behold. The Pixar Formula.

There are a few notable films that break the formula, such as The Incredibles, Brave, and the subject of today’s review, WALL-E.

Episode 3 - Fighter Flight

"All for fruit! Actually I prefer pizza. Meat lovers pizza."

This is Fighter Flight, and not a lot to say. It was fun to say the least.

This the first of a new kind of blog post I will start writing. It’s called a rant, in which I spew my hatred for things that offend me on a deep and personal level. It is more personal and less professional than my other reviews, and as such should not be considered one. Anyway, on with the rant!

Greetings blogiverse! Let’s talk about anime.

Anime is a genre of animation that is usually defined as being made primarily for a Japanese audience my Japanese producers, with many productions marketed towards adults just as much as towards children. It comes in many forms, styles, and interpretations. These may range from the literal never-ending story of Naruto, to the masterpieces of Hayao Miyazaki.

I like ‘most’ anime. There are a couple that I have a deep-seeded hatred for, and I wish they and their creators would burn in eternal hellfire… But then again there are plenty of American cartoons I feel the same way about *cough* cough* Family Guy *cough*. But for the most part, anime is usually of a quality not matched by Western animation, or even Western live-action. Shows and films like Darker Than Black, Ghost in the Shell, and Evangelion push the limits of what animation, and even the traditional narrative, can achieve. Very few Western productions even come CLOSE to achieving that, (Avatar: The Last Airbender is the obvious exception).

But, as I stated earlier, there are some examples of anime I do not enjoy, among them being Naruto and Bleach. However, there is one anime that rises above all others as the single most awful abomination to ever walk or rear its hideously deformed maw on the face of the entire world. This disgusting perversion of something I hold dear to myself has the gall to even exist in the same universe as I. It is, without question, the eponymous, the atrocious, Stitch! The Anime…
